PartnersPRN presents Genetics and Bleeding Disorders: Expanding Nurses’ Proficiency a complementary CE activity provided by the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education and the National Hemophilia Foundation.
As part of the management team at HTCs, nurses frequently spend more time with patients on an ongoing basis than any other specialist on the team, providing an opportunity to increase patients’ and families’ understanding of bleeding disorders. Although nurses are frequently involved in discussions concerning the implications of the genetics of a bleeding disorder with patients or family members, they are often not adequately educated about the science behind these disorders.
This activity begins with Dr. Barbara Konkle’s (Puget Sound Blood Center) presentation Genetics of Bleeding Disorders. Michelle Alabek, MS, CGC (Hemophilia Center of Western Pennsylvania) follows with Discussing the Genetics of a Bleeding Disorder. Jennifer Maahs, PNP (Indiana Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center) closes the activity with Case Studies Review.
The intended learners for this activity are nurses who are involved in the management of individuals with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.
The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to increase knowledge related to the genetics of bleeding disorders and to familiarize participants with typical information reviewed with patients (with bleeding disorders) by genetic counselors.
After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:
Summarize the underlying genetic basis for hemophilia and other, less common congenital bleeding disorders
Outline several ways in which a congenital bleeding disorder can impact family planning and pregnancy care
The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
This activity is provided for 1.4 contact hours under ANCC criteria.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Biogen Idec.
HERE’S HOW TO PARTICIPATE!
HTC staff should login under the “Education for HTCs-By HTCs” section of the home page. All others can find this activity by signing in under “Education for All Healthcare Providers”. This activity is located in the “Genetics” category.
